Blueprint has been busy updating its classic B4 King of Games Club Menu, which saw its latest release last month.
The all-new menu still holds the compendium of Pub Fruits and Premium Content, but now also boasts Blueprint’s High Roller Roulette, which replaces the previous Cashpot Roulette.
High Roller Roulette was launched earlier this year on the Roulette King Menu and is set on a fixed £2 stake, £400 Jackpot.
The game is based on Traditional European Roulette, with 37 numbers from 0-36 on a wheel and a betting table and players can bet between 200 and 5000 points per game. The player gains a spin of the roulette wheel, depending on whether they trigger the entry gamble at the start of each game.
If the entry gamble is triggered; the roulette wheel then goes into spin and – depending on the outcome – rewards the player with a cash prize based on the points wagered.
Other games on the all-new B4 menu include Luck of the Irish (Blueprint’s most successful all-round game) and a mix of top performing games that include Super Diamond Jackpots and Multi Wilds.
“We’ve just updated our B4 menu to include High Roller Roulette at a £2 stake, the game has proved extremely successful on our Roulette King menu launched at the beginning of the year. This addition will definitely see the product going to the next level,” says Blueprint Operation’s Head of Content James Lowe.
Betcom only has space to take two machines to the upcoming Park Avenue Open Day; The Chase – it’s current leading analogue title and the newly released Hi/Lo Poker, a digital compendium developed in conjunction with Project for the Cat D/Cat C Lite sectors.
However, the subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group of companies currently has a wide range of new, exciting games available.
Gavin Wright, UK Sales Manager Blueprint Operations discusses the crossover of Cat C and B3 games and how it encourages players to try new titles.
For Blueprint players, Cat C allows enjoyment of the same games and titles as B3 but at a lower stake. For the pub sector, we have found that a mix of game styles on Cat C, including slot-style games is growing the player base. However, in locations where Cat C and B3 can be sited together, there is no depreciation of cashbox, even when the same game titles appear at different stake levels on both offers. In fact, we have seen cashboxes increase across the board. From an operator’s perspective, therefore, as well as for players Cat C is about offering the choice of a lower stake for those who feel more comfortable with it.
The UK market is feeling the impact of the B3 Buffalo Rising MegaWays slot game, whose players are feeling the call of the wild!
Buffalo Rising MegaWays now features an additional row above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 to help create up to 117,649 ways to win. Buffalo Rising MegaWays uses reel bands with 6 reels, which can show symbols from 2 high, to a maximum of 7 high. Buffalo Rising MegaWays features a mystery symbol and an exciting Free Spins round that uses an unlimited win multiplier. The £2 upgrade is an increased award card.
With Betcom’s latest Cat C title, The Chase, already generating “exceptional” performance figures just weeks after its release, the company’s MD, Simon McCarthy, reaffirms its commitment to the analogue market.
